Indigenous sports of Manipur


Manipur has a rich tradition of art and culture and is an emerging sports power. The tradition of games and sports date back to the history of small kingdoms which were in keen competition with one another. The "Sagol Kangjei" (Polo), an indigenous game of Manipur is now played worldwide. There are a number of indigenous games in the State namely; Yubi Lakpi (Manipuri Rugby), Khong Kangjei (Manipuri Hockey), Kang, Hiyang Tannaba (Boat race), Thang-Ta, etc.

  • Gurukuls (hostel & school) would be constructed at Imphal or any district where in the students would stay and learn the various indigenous sports forms. The schools should have ample capacity.

But primarily the schools will be boarding schools. During the lean season the school would serve to educate and train the local Manipur residents
